Details on how and when to contact the squadron.

We're excited to announce a new fundraiser for the squadron: The Riverbend Gardens CSA Fundraiser!

What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture is when families pre-purchase a set number of weeks of fresh produce from a farm in their local area. In the case of Riverbend Gardens, the CSA is 15 weeks long starting in early July and offers unbelieveably fresh, high-quality, and locally grown produce for your family, starting as low as $23 per week.

Sign-up is now open. We encourage cadet families to purchase the CSA and to offer it to extended family, co-workers, and neighbours. 

Riverbend Gardens will be donating 15% of all sales made by cadets back to the squadron!

Bingo Signup

A new year means new Bingo committments for all of our cadet families. The first dates for the training year are out and still in need of sign-ups. There will be more dates into 2019 but we encourage you to get some of your bingos out of the way early.
